AI sires:

Since 2007 we have introduced a major AI programme at Wilodge in order to expand the bloodlines within the herd.

AI sires have been selected to compliment certain females, to expand genetics of certain cow families, to produce bulls to sell of a consistent stamp and in some instances to improve BLUP figures. Some sires have also been selected to breed show potential commercial calves on our small but quality selection of commercial females.

Some of the AI sires used to date have been:
